Explore the Santa Fe Trail through a sampling of the goods that traveled between the United States and Mexico in the 1800s. Manufactured items from the eastern coast of the United States and Europe made up the bulk of the goods traveling to Mexico. Furs, wool fleeces and woven goods, silver and mules traveled from Mexico for trade in the United States. Millions of dollars in merchandise traveled this 900 mile international trade route.
Trunk Talks are sponsored by the Scott County Historical Society in conjunction with the Kansas Historical Society. Special THANKS to the Western Kansas Community Foundation for their generous grant!
